GREENVILLE - Brethren Retirement Community has been serving senior citizens in Darke County and surrounding areas for over a century. Through a recent donation to Empowering Darke County Youth, BRC also continues to serve community young people.

Brethren Retirement Community has been a strong force in the community since its founding 115 years ago. Today it offers a variety of levels of care, from independent living and winter stay to assisted living, skilled nursing and more. Empowering volunteers and the children they serve appreciate the retirement community’s support.

Empowering offers a variety of programs, from the After School Program to Summer Tutoring at the Greenville Library and Summer Reading at Edison State Community College, Darke County Campus. The tutoring program is unable to take any more requests at this time, however the Summer Reading Program is open Mondays from 3:30 to 5:30 and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 to 3:00. No appointment necessary, just drop in and “read a bit.”

“We would like to thank the community for its continuing support of our programs,” said Eric Fee, Empowering President. He noted, however, the summer programs are still short of their funding goals for this year. Donations can be sent to Empowering Darke County Youth, P.O. Box 1113, Greenville, Ohio 45331.

The Mission: Empowering Darke County Youth provides After School and Summer Tutoring programs to assist students in the areas of language arts and math with the goal of Strong Students for a Strong Community.
